The speed of his transition exceeded all our expectations. When you are junior, there are a lot of rules and people are put in place to look after you, but my view was that once he was competing as a senior he should be treated like a senior. His dad would travel with him and stay in a nearby hotel, so Tom always had the option of going to see him, but other than that he was treated like the rest of the squad. Tonia Couch Olympic diver and Plymouth team-mate Tom was probably about 2ft tall when I saw him for the first time.
Very cute, but very goofy. A few years later we started travelling together to competitions and training camps, but he was still so young that we all tended to look after him. We made our Olympic debuts in Beijing, and I think he handled himself really well. It was nerve-racking for both of us but we both went to China determined just to enjoy the experience. I suppose Tom is like a brother to me now. I see him pretty much every day — probably more than anyone else in his life.
Every time we see each other we laugh all the time. He does not act like someone with such a big media profile. In fact, he never talks about his fame or anything like that. He was with his dad, Rob. He was only 13 and probably should not have been there.
I was immediately impressed by his presence. Tom already had the aura of a major sports star.
He was confident in his ability yet humble about his success. He is a credit to himself, his family and Great Britain. We signed Tom as a client just before the Beijing Olympics. It has been a fantastic journey. He is the perfect client. Bright, a good communicator and not a bad looking guy. Meanwhile Black added a photo of them arm in arm, about to kiss, on top of a bridge, with the caption: A post shared by Dustin Lance Black dlanceblack on May 8, at 1: The diving ace imitated Juliet from the Shakespeare play on the balcony of Bovey Castle as he larked about with his partner and guests before the ceremony.
A few hours later, Daley swapped vows with American Oscar-winning screenwriter Black, who is 20 years his senior. Dustin Lance Black left and Tom Daley had a rocky relationship before they tied the knot.
It was reported the athlete had an month affair with a male model Edward William while his movie maker fiance was working abroad. According to the claims, Tom had met Edward in the street and the duo began chatting online in - he is thought to have exchanged sexually explicit messages with the year-old and had 'physical' liaisons with him. It's been reported the Team GB star sent male model Edward William 'sexually explicit messages' and had 'physical' liaisons with him. A source told The Sun in February: Their 'affair' is said to have ended inbut it was claimed Tom and Edward had still been in touch as of last month.
Tom and his movie maker beau have brushed off the accusations and confirmed things between them are 'all good' in an Instagram video. The allegations came after the diving ace previously confessed to having an online tryst with another man while taking a secret break from his relationship with Dustin. He admitted the duo had been on a seven-month 'break' due to demanding work commitments.
Tom has since made sure to put on a united front with his husband-to-be and during a trip to San Francisco not long after the allegations first surfaced, the pair proved they are now stronger than ever.
Tom shared a clip of himself and Dustin to Instagram and was seen asking his beau: The Olympian was seen asking his beau in the video: He has since insisted that he knew he wanted to settle down with Dustin just a week into their romance.
